in common with chuck hagel than it does with john mccain. they are opposed to intervention. they're in favor of cutting defense budgets as part of an overrecall reduction in government spending. so libertarians like the idea of chuck hagel, who wants to be part of cuts and who wants to be less interventionist. remember, libertarians want to bring the troops home just as much as many liberals used to when george w. bush was president. so it's complicated for rand paul. he says he's fighting hagel on these principle grounds as it relates to benghazi, as it relates to the disclosure of documents and other things. but if libertarians had their way, they would prefer him to the guy who was just in there, leon panetta. >> rand paul is an intriguing character, if for no other reason than he always maintainses a very, very calm demeanor, but fires some heavy broadsides at the same time, one of which he fired at secretary of state hillary clinton during the benghazi hearing. let's take listen to what he said. >> and had i been president at the time and i found that you did not read the cables from be
managed to filibuster him last week and deny an up or down vote for now, but john mccain was on the show saying he'll get a vote, it will happen. february 26th. he'll get his vote and when he does, he'll likely get approved because the democrats control the senate, but there's a question, chris, about whether that's true, in the way that bob woodward put it, there's the danger of witherring on the vine and you know, you're out there and timing is a factor and twisting slowly in the wind, that's how he put it. and the more of these things that emerge, the more potential trouble because now he's got the 2007 rutgers allegation and two others that he has not produced and this whole thing ties into a comment he did acknowledge on the record as having made back in 2006, and here it is, listen. >> the jewish lobby intimidates a lot of people. the united states, and... the. >> megyn: the jewish lobby intimidates a lot of people and so we have a theme emerging here and the pro-israel stance is not a republican thing or a democrat thing, that's more of an american thing. >> right. well, look, for
john mccain and others giving them more information. they had hoped by sending this yesterday or the day before, that they could change minds and make the senators vote yes to proceed to the vote even if they wanted to reject hagel's nomination. it wasn't. it seems like they are unhappy with this pick, they wanted the president to make a different pick, and they wanted to be -- host: we did see four republicans cross over and vote with democrats and one voting present and not voting to move forward or not. why did they go that way and who were they? guest: senator hatch was one. either you vote yes or you vote no. there was talk that he doesn't believe in the filibuster so he did not want to vote no. i think you should probably vote yes. but republican leadership was actively against this vote so i guess that would be the reason. of the people who voted to not block it one of them was senator collins who is the more moderate republican from the northeast. also the senator from nebraska which is chuck hagel's home state. there was another person who voted to proceed but democra

're not just dumping on a few people and not doing it in a dumb way. senators like john mccain have made similar statements to what scott said. your republican governor, along with other governors around the country, said they want congress to stop the sequester, stop these cuts. but i just have to be honest with you. there are too many republicans in congress right now who refuse to compromise even an inch when it comes to closing tax loopholes and special interest tax breaks. and that's what's holding things up right now. keep in mind nobody's asking them to raise income tax rates. all we're asking is to consider closing tax loopholes and deductions that the speaker of the house, john boehner, said he was willing to do just a few months ago. he said there were a bunch of loopholes and deductions you could close. said you could raise $800 billion, $1 trillion by closing loopholes. we're not even asking for that much. all we're asking is that they close loopholes for the well-off and well connected, for hedge fund managers or oil companies or corporate jet owners who are all doing very w
for something he shouldn't have, he he couldn't do it. when john mccain pressed him on the issue of whether or not, you know, he repudiated the staples about the surge. stumbled. he stammered he couldn't get himself. >> what's wrong with saying yes, i was against the surge? that wouldn't preclude. >> honesty is refreshing. if he said i was against the surge and you know what? i was wrong. the surge ended up, wog. i didn't think it would. i wasn't sure that it should it worked but you know what? i made a mistake on that. >> then they could have moved on. >> now they have camped out and built a fire and they have toasted marshmallows over this guy. >> governor huckabee's show 8:00 p.m. tonight on the fox news channel. who do you have coming up? >> general jack cain will be with us. four star general to talk about what's happening in the military. a couple of congressman to talk about will republicans go with the immigration policy? of course there is much more that i don't even have time to tell you. >> i enjoy the much more though. >> the machine more -- much more is the best. she is going t
directly from saudi arabia, came directly from north korea -- >> that got him a smackdown from john mccain. >> no one on this committee at any time should impune his character or integrity. >> from democrats, suggestions of mccarthyiasm. >> it was rep nis sent of bad times. >> i do find it ironic in the course of labeling me, they also chide me for not respecting comedy. >> it's clear cruz did not run for senate to make friends. >> i find it amusing that those in washington are puzzled when someone actually does what they said they would do. >> now one gop senator i spoke to about cruz saying that even in the case of healthy egos, cruz stands out for his ego and a tea party activist said that, wolf, he could do well with a small dose of humor. but still it's very clear, talking to cruz, watching him, he relishes the kind of criticism. >> a lot of republicans will reject the nomination of chuck hagel to be defense secretary but only three. he was one of them, rejected john kerry. why did he he reject john kerry? >> because john kerry has agreed to and supported too many international treati

including john mccain, lindsey graham and lamar alexander said yesterday afternoon on the senate floor that while they would vote against cloture this week, they would be willing to allow nomination to move forward when congress returns after the recess. quote, i think it is efficient period of time to get answers to outstanding questions would be in effect, said senator mccain. both the senate and the house are not in the next week taking a break for the presidents' day recess. we will again bring live coverage of the senate's pro-forma session that will get underway at noon eastern on c-span2. as always you can see the house live right now on the companion network, c-span. army chief of staff general raymond odierno is at the brookings institution today. he will be talking about the impact of the sequestration of the army and its future mission in afghanistan and around the world. he will have his remarks live on c-span2 starting in about 20 minutes at 11 a.m. eastern. in the meantime, wednesday defense secretary leon panetta told what could be his final press conference as head of t
